So... have we hired Hue Jackson yet?

JR isn't the one that will be calling him to offer a job. Nice misplaced anger though.

yep, this is on rivera and gettleman.

It all starts from the top. Waiting too long until all the good ones are gone and then going after scraps. If it's all RR's job to decide, which I believe it isn't all his, then JR should push him more. But instead he's laying back.

No JR has his thumb up his ass and won't call Jackson until he has already signed the dotted line with another team.

Some of you are bound and damn determined to blame everything on JR...whether it's his hire or not.

Sheesh

Are you advocating for a "hands in everything", meddling type owner, a la Jerry Jones?

No, but it's been almost a week since he's been interviewed. He should be asking why RR hasn't made a decision yet. It shouldn't take that long to decide.

How do you know he's not?

The one search in which Richardson was directly involved, the GM search, finished relatively quickly and with good results.

Assistant coach positions fall under the head coach with the GM signing off on hires.

Why the wait? Could be any number of things, not all of them sinister.

JR gets involved in things...he's al davis/jerruh jones v.2

JR sits back and lets the guys he hired figure out stuff....he's not involved enough as an owner/doesn't care.

guy can't win...well, literally and figuratively.

I see it as being a very important hire for Mr. Gettleman to get right and Gman and co.doing their homework is what im seeing. I am not one who thinks with a "titanic" mentality.

Mr. Man might hire someone that has not been readily mentioned on here, relatively unknown. Gman is looking for a football guy, not a who is who imo.

But whoever it is im happy he has the final call.

Don't understand why it wouldn't be today. One option is in-house, Shurmer seemingly has no other options (at least as an OC), and Hue doesn't have a shot at the Cincy OC job now that Jay Gruden is certain to return. If we know who we want, it should be easy as offering the position and seeing if they accept.

In fact, I think only Hue would sit on an offer if he got one and determine whether he wanted to be in Carolina or wait out another year and see if Jay leaves after next season. So if we don't find out today, I can only think that Hue is who we want, but we're waiting on an answer.

Just doesn't make a lot of sense to me either. The team has interviewed the viable candidates. There really aren't any other hot OC picks out there. In my opinion time is precious. The OC pick needs to able to tweak or tailor his play book to fit the teams strengths and Cam's unique skill-set. I would have to believe the organization is leaning toward Hue with the pick .. Shula as the back up plan. If it is Hue lets sign him ....new pllay books still have to be disbursed.

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
